    I'd be wanting that 2000 spent knocked off the price of a Mini from them!
    Sounds like easyjet

    In the airline industry there is a big lack of jobs. To stayed qualified as a pilot you must fly a plane for x amount of hours. Easyjet are charging the people without a job to fly there aircraft (ones in full service) so the pilots can stay rated and qualified.

    Think of how much money you'll save on not buying petrol during the trial. I easily spend 50 a week on fuel.

    It'll cost around 82.50 a week to take part - I'd be happy with that.

    ^^ Exactly. Mini say on thier website that if you normally spend 170 in petrol per month then you this will be equivalent to around 14 in electricity. That is a massive amount of money to save and who wouldn't want that?

    I was actually going to apply for one of these, but I live in an area of Oxfordshire they don't cover.
